    Posted: October-13-2016 at 1:17pm
As we closed out the 2016 CCFan Mini's at Badin last weekend I was asked about by several fans about "The River Ruckus". After discussing it with a few of the regular attendees since this one was started we decided that we will kick off the 2017 boating season again at the same time as the Tavares Boat Show in Mt Dora. Soooooooooooooooo.....mark it on your calendar

River Ruckus 2017 March 24-26th!

We will once again, keep the same schedule as that is what everyone loves about this event.

Fri- A trip down river on boats via river, lakes and locks to the Antique Boat show.

Sat - A trip across Lake George to the Silver Glen Springs with a BWYB cookout that
        evening

Sun- More playtime on the River for those who are sticking round.

Nothing Fancy, same ol' same ole.... Ground Zero will be Parramores with the cookout at the Rec Hall. Cabins for rent, RV parking, Tent camping plus Buck & Kat's for all your Breakfast dining pleasures.

A few of us did get together early last year and made a 3 day trek from Jacksonville to Astor on the St. Johns River stopping for playtime, dinner and a place to crash for the evening. May do it again if there is enough interest. So pipe up if you're interested.

See ya in March!

I am going to head down for the boat show. I would like to bring the Mustang. If I put it it in the water I want to spend the day doing 1 thing, pulling skiers, wakeboarders, kneeboarders, barefooters, even a tuber! Is there a good day for this where the group is near some nice glassy water?

It looks like the stars are lining in for the Murphy's. A month ago, I wasn't even a maybe for this trip, but my son Grant just got invited to a swim meet in Orlando from March 21st to March 24th. I can't see being down there without sneaking over to the SJRR. I'll keep you all posted.

Good news Murph.....I'll update this thread after Christmas or New Years as to what is going on. I have yet to contact Parramores Fish Camp to see if they will give us a discount on cabin/rv slot rentals like last year and to reserve to Rec Hall for our traditional Bring what you Brought Cookout.

Also....... Do our Ruckus attendees wanna do shirts again or do you have a closet full of SJRR shirts? If so pipe up as I'll get Action Screen working on a new design. Thanks Y'all!

I will be there with a few friends joining me. Hope to have a boat in tow. Make the shirts please. Only a few short months to go.

Okay Guys.... Here is the latest on The Ruckus. We have the Rec Hall reserved for Saturday nights Bring What You Brought Cookout. As of this posting there are 12 Cabins and 14 RV slips available for the weekend of the Ruckus. Parramores will give you a 10% discount of the bill if you inform them that you are a member of Correct Craft Fan and will be attending the gathering for the weekend. They are well aware and familiar with what we do and look forward every year to us being there to liven up the place for a few days.

Still ironing out the details of the Jacksonville to Astor 3 day River Run. Hurricane Matthew did some damage to the docks in the towns where we tied up for our over night stays so I'll reach out to the towns to try and get an update on their repair/replacement. Stay tuned for updates on this...........

Same schedule as always. Looking forward to the official kickoff of boating/ski season 2017 and no better way to do so than with this group. March will be here before you know it so get to planning and get your cabin booked.

Why that is quite neighborly of you.
Thanky Kostas. and a happy New Year. I'm looking for a local sourced regular old 22' aluminum tandem bunk that will haul the Baitkiller or the Little 'ol gray boat north or south as needed and not melt in two years. I have my eye on one now. May work a ~ trade for Ians Kart, a wakeboard and an old Kidder tourney.

Wanted to update you all on the latest and greatest news from River Ruckus Central. Ruckus Organizers have set the pre event 3 day cruise from Jacksonville to Astor as follows:

Monday March 20:

We will be departing Jacksonville around 1-2:oo leaving from Mandarin Park Boat Launch. Boats in water before hand and Rigs already returned to Parramores and possibly a Uber ride back to the launch. Goal is to be at Green Cove Springs by dinner time with CCFans dining at a local Pub... Hotel in town is Green Cove Springs Inn.

Tuesday March 21:

Breakfast at the same Pub where we ate dinner then it's loading up the boats when ever and heading down to Palatka to the Quality Inn where there will be docks at the hotel to tie up to and dinner at Beef O Bradys. The ACBS folks will also be out in about so chances are we'll see a bunch of Woodies Docking into the same Hotel for the evening. Cocktails on Skippers Rum at 5:00 will be on the menu as well as watersports as time and water conditions allow.

Wed March 22:

Breakfast at the Hotel then we're off through to Crescent Lake for the day via Dunns Creek. VERY cool river cruise and skiing on the best glass ever. Into the lake for more watersports and then dinner 3 Bananas staying at a local B&B and the Lake View Motel in Crescent City.

Thursday March 23:

Finish the journey heading back up Crescent lake down the St. Johns into Lake George and stopping at the Silver Glenn Springs or heading down to Parramores and playing on the river, "Shell" Lungren island or whatever.... Boats on trailers in the evening prepping for Fridays adventure down river to the Tavarres Boat show on Lake Dorra.

That's the plan so pipe up if you're planning on this 3 day excursion... Just a small handful of us are going for sure: Those that went last year had a blast and we're changing it up just a little but fun will be had if you dare!

It'll be here soon guys....... Lets kick off this year with a week of Fun in March!

If I can snag a seat on someone's vessel, I'd absolutely be down for joining in on the river cruise. Don't think I can work out the logistics of getting my boat up there and truck back home.

Not a problem Jake...once we have a tally of who is coming and what boats will be available...We'll decide on which boats will make the trip. More enjoyable if you got 2 or more people in a boat so some boats will be left in Astor I'm sure.

Wow, that's gorgeous! I see the river run starts the week before my Daughter's official Spring Break. Not sure how that's going to play into my participation. Sure would like to be there and experience that event, even if solo with family joining later. Working it....

Okay gang here's the latest update on the cabins at Parramores.............

4- 2 Bedroom cabins off the water
2 - 1 Bedroom loft cabins off water
2- 3 Bedroom cabins off water

1- 2 Bedroom cabin on the water

March is fast approaching so book your cabin now. Plan on announcing this event on FB on the Nautique Owners group page so more CC owners but Non- CCFans may snag whats left.... Better get around the ball and make plans to attend.
